now to a very special everyone has a story. this one is about finding a family and finding love. a surprising way life can come full circle. >> patrick wrote in to tell us his extraordinary journey. we'll meet him and his family in a moment but first listen to his letter very carefully. >> i was born on september 27, 1978. my birth parents were teenagers at the time and in the end my mom opted to put me up for adoption. i was adopted by two wonderful parents. my adopted mom had lupus. she was a soldier and fought the disease as long as she could but it became too much for her to handle. she died in november 1989 when i was 11. life after my mom's death was difficult.
10:36 am
and i. then eventually he remarried and we moved in with his his wife and her daughter. fast forward 20-plus years to a time when i had a son my own. i decided to embark on the journey to find my birth parents. when i reached out to the adoption agency, they told me my mom had left her contact information with them around the time i turned 18. i was ecstatic. i turned to the internet and within 20 minutes on facebook, i had a confirmed match. i knew the minute i saw her picture i found the right person. there was no mistaking the resemblance. our first phone conversation lasted for hours. but that was just the beginning. my birth mother was able to track down my birth father. they hadn't really spoken or had any contact since they were together as teenagers when i was born. my mom's husband had a pulmonary condition and unfortunately passed away. it was devastating to my mom. my birth father was in the process of separation and as
10:37 am
had when i was born. and then yes, you guessed it, they got back together. they recently even got married. it was completely surreal for all of us in the most amazing way possible. last year, my birth parents came out to east coast and got to meet my adopted dad for the very first time. it was an incredible and emotional day, one that i'll never forget. sometimes life comes full circle and gives you back more in return than you ever missed the first time around. >> wow. >> so patrick is here with us along with his birth parents stephanie and todd ripple. this is unbelievable. >> this is crazy. >> hoda thinks it's like doing one of her "datelines." >> when you left your contact information after the birth of your son, did you ever -- i mean what was your intent when you left it do you think back then? i know you were just a teenager? >> i wanted to reconnect. >> you did? you knew that some day --
10:38 am
have a nurse in the hospital sneak me into a closet with my son before they took him away and let me spend a few minutes with him. and i told him one day i will see you again. >> oh, my gosh. >> and then -- and this relationship, so you guys were obviously teenage sweethearts. and then you lost contact altogether? like there was no communication between the two of you through the years? >> it was kind of a parental insistence there. >> how old were you? may i ask that? >> i was 17 and then 18 when i delivered. and from a very strict religious family. and it was forbidden that we continued our relationship. >> so were the sparks there when you remet? is that what happened? it's so funny.
10:39 am
years just disappeared. >> really? >> the same. >> and patrick, for you, were you thinking, this is just surreal? >> it really was. i mean, i started the whole process in my head, hopes but no expectations. i knew i may not even find them or, you know, may contact them and it wouldn't go any further than that. >> maybe they wouldn't even want to be found. >> right. so each surprise along the way has just added to, you know, the whole i went from one side of, you know, realistically knowing i may not ever find them to where we're at today so it's just been one complete surprise after another. >> i'm just curious, how was that first hug with your mom? >> well, it was the picture right there when we were in the airport. >> what did it feel like? >> it was eerie how familiar it was. it felt like you had just said good-bye to someone and they were coming home, you know, when you found someone so -- >> wow. i hope we've done this amazing
